What We Do

VCM and BIM

A Single Source of Truth

Quality begins with the design. As part of our Integrated Design-Build (IDB) process, our engineering drafters and detailers are integrated into one Virtual Construction Modeling (VCM) team. Successful integration of these groups is somewhat unique in the industry and is a result of PSF’s culture of focusing on client goals and project outcomes. This integration accelerates completion drawings and maximizes efficiency and accuracy through all phases of design, fabrication and field installation.

Our Building Information Modeling (BIM) capabilities maximize project value and eliminate waste. Our building system models each serve as a central repository for data, or “Single Source of Truth” where internal team members individually see real-time information, and annotate changes as needed, creating a decision audit trail and historical perspective. As a result, we are able to provide Value Engineering (VE), constructability evaluation, energy analysis, logistics assessment and cost budgeting in real time, early on in a project.

Our continued advances in VCM and BIM have resulted in:

  • Improved efficiencies
  • Reduced schedules
  • Reduced overall costs
  • Eliminated re-work
  • Reduced RFIs
  • Enhanced inter-trade coordination
  • Accurate cost estimates
  • Computerized connection to fabrication tools for seamless installation
  • Increased labor efficiency in the field

We are dedicated to the integrity of information. From generating drawings from a single model, to clash detection, to the creation of comprehensive 3D building system models, we take BIM to the next level, focusing on well-structured information to make projects more efficient, precise, and successful for all involved.
